School Food Labeling Initiative

Lauren Maunus

Palm City, FL | 17

2015 AWARD RECIPIENT

"My project has provided a path toward a profound appreciation of Tikkun Olam, empowering me to find my voice as an advocate and reinforcing the principle that I cannot simply be a bystander to injustice."

School Food Labeling Initiative

Lauren Maunus has collaborated with government officials at the local, state, and federal levels, along with medical and nonprofit organizations, to advocate for giving students comprehensive information about the allergens and nutritional value of their cafeteria food. In addition to lobbying and partnering with like-minded organizations and leaders, she spearheaded the development of a software platform that allows students and parents to easily identify the allergen and nutrition information for every item on a school's cafeteria menu.
